Best pocket diaper for babies with skinny legs??

What works for your skinny legged kiddos? I'm especially interested in OS options since I will soon have 3 in cloth!

Re: Best pocket diaper for babies with skinny legs??

Well this is my first day cloth diapering so maybe Im not the one to answer, haha, but my DD has chicken legs. She is 100%ile in height and 40% in weight, so she's a tall skinny minny! Right now she is in a Bumgenius OS and it has held up great so far, no leaks. I also have some Kawaii dipes that I havent yet to try but Ive heard theyre good for skinny legs.

This is my almost 10 lb-er in a Blueberry OS pocket, minky (I think the deluxe OS pockets are a bit more stretchy than the minky, I preferred them... but darn those minkies are cute!). He was 1 month old.

My kiddos start out with skinny legs then develop big, FAT legs later on. I loved the fit of BBs for any time

With my skinny minnie DD I found that zig zag elastic in the legs made for a perfect fit. I had a few dipes with cased elastic and always had gaping in the legs. Of course, they leaked.

It's always a journey to find what works for you!

Rocky Mountain pockets are great for skinny legs and are one size

I had preemie twins born who are still super skinny at 17 months (20 pounds), and we've had really good luck with the BumGenius 3.0 pockets!!

Big belly and skinny legs- did best with BumGenius. No leaks around legs, but no red marks either!

Softbums might work well for you - the toggles pull down REALLY tight!

FuzziBunz OS would be a good option too.

Re: Best pocket diaper for babies with skinny legs??

for skinny babies i would NOT do fuzzi bunz!! they are ginormous on my skinnie-minnie... and i never could get a good fit with the one-size, and so sold them when she was 4 months old....

i had more success with Blueberry one size Deluxe and Minkee diapers, but for a newborn I have fantasies of the mini-deluxe.....

after I gave up on FB ... i gave up on pockets, mostly b/c I hate stuffing, but I do have 4 BB one size that have hardly ever had a leak!!

I don't like FB for my skinny guy, but I have a Smartipants OS that works well.
